Mandukasana activates the solar plexus which is located in the navel region and also activates the root chakra which is present at the base of the spine. This asana should be performed 5 to 6 times, but at the same time, while holding this position, you should take your breath 5 to 10 times.

- Now slowly exhale and bend your knees and bring your ankles to your hips. Now hold the soles of both your feet with both your hands and breathe 2-3 times. Now while exhaling, raise your head above the floor and look up.
- Now fold your hands so that your palms touch the upper part of your feet and your toes point towards your head.
- Now, while pushing both your hands, lower your hands further, so that both your toes and heels come closer to the ground. Now keep your arms straight from wrists to elbows.

- Now while exhaling slowly, free your hands from the feet and come out of this posture and come to rest and relax.
